International Relationships

In order to strengthen the cross-border ties, the Law Society also acts as a bridge between legal and business communities between the East and the West. We have signed 36 Memoranda of Understanding (“MOUs”) with 34 overseas lawyers associations and international legal organisations across the globe. As our constituency includes over 1,520 registered foreign lawyers qualified in 33 different jurisdictions, we are well-acquainted with the laws and legal systems of different countries around the world.
